Can I use the shotgun seat on my carbon frame?

Yes, we have many customers around the world using the shotgun seat on high-end carbon mountain bikes.

The clamping force of the shotgun seat is minimal thanks to the load being shared across 5 points of contact, with each point having moulded rubber frame protection. 

Here's the shotgun seat on a carbon Pivot Firebird in all its glory.

  • Is this still suitable if my down tube is considerably wider than my top tube?
